Sewing right along...

Yesterday evening while Hunter went with his friend to see the new Harry Potter movie, Richard and I took the 4-wheeler out to check on the big bottom to see if it was ready to have hay cut from it. It was getting late so we took the 4-wheeler instead of walking out there. As you can see here it is dark in the woods but the sky is still light. I took several photos but I'll only post a couple of them.

There is also a small older cabin/building out there but it is all grown up around it and you can hardly see it. Anyway after that we went back to the house to watch tv and wait for Hunter to get back home. He had a wonderful time.


Today I got all of my scrap windmill blocks sewn together to make a top. Now I will put it away until I get upstairs and can dig out something for a border. Right now it measures 54x63 and I would like to have it a little larger. I don't have it all spread out here but maybe you can get an idea of how it looks. Very quick and easy!!
Here is what I have done so far on my leaders/enders project. I really wish that I had used Civil War fabric for these but, I guess I should use up the regular scraps first.....or maybe not.... I just think the Civil War fabrics would look great with the cheddar solid.
And right now I am trying to finish up my last 2 rows (14 blocks) of my Civil War Wreaths quilt. I showed what I had done to mom when she got home and she asked me this morning if I had finished it yet so I think that was a hint to get my butt in gear! LOL!

Back to quilting....

The windmills and bow ties are great looking scrap quilts.
I love the beauty of nature that surrounds you. What a wonderful place to live!

I have been resisting the Cheddar Bow Tie Leader and Ender project...but I don't think I will be able to resist much longer! Your blocks look great! Wonder if I have some Cheddar in my stash?
